New Additions & A Photo For Tom.

Recommended Posts

These girls will be seven weeks old tomorrow and will be staying here. Their sisters are going to live at a nearby school. Hopefully third time lucky for me with Salmon Faverolles. The first I hatched was the only chicken I've ever lost to my dogs, the second prolapsed with her first egg, so fingers crossed that this little girl lives a long and happy life :pray:

They are scrumptious, so feathery and yummy. 8) Does Peaches have a 5th toe or is it the angle

Awwww how beautiful. We have a Favorelle and she is one of my favourites, they are so placid and tame and they lay quite well too :D

Introducing her to the flock after her broodiness will be a good experiment in chicken intelligence. She's a full sister to my Bridget & Francesca. Firstly, can my flock count how many gold Brahmas there are amongst them? Will they notice the difference between her and her sisters?

Ooh lovely, especially Peaches! Your broody looks like she's muttering profanities under her breath :lol: and your other one, "Cream" instantly sprung to mind for a name! But more like gold-top :lol:

Sticking with my usual theme of naming hens after Royalty, Mr Griffin came up with a brilliant name for new broody Brahma. Stuck up, fierce looking grumpy woman? Princess Michael of Kent :lol:
